Here is the latest release from Caracal Models just in time for the Gallery Models' 1/48 UH-34 Seabat/Seahorse kits. This set provides four US Marine Corps examples wearing variations of color and subdued markings from the early days of the Vietnam war..
The subjects covered in this set include:
- UH-34D, 150280, HMM-363, YZ82, Vietnam, 1966
- UH-34D, 148771, HMM-362, YL39, Vietnam, 1966
- UH-34D, 150272, HMM-163, YP3, Khe Sahn, Vietnam, 1966
- UH-34D, 149351, HMM-163, 18, Khe Sahn, Vietnam, 1966
The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide national markings, distinctive unit art markings as well as a nice set of airframe stencils. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
